The Kids Table
Remake snacks into treats you can live with
Looking to sneak a little disodium inosinate into your kids' diets? Neither are we. Which is why we love Azima's snack mix recipe, in place of Chex Mix. With our imitation Pop-Tart, you can add a little healthy boost by using fresh fruit instead of preserves. (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune)
Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 16 minutes Servings: 8
2 pie crusts, 9 inches each
3/4 cup all-fruit jam
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup milk
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Roll pie crust flat, and as rectangular as possible, about 12 by 10 inches. Trim to make the sides as even as possible. Cut the dough into rectangles about 3 by 10 inches. Spread the dough with jam, leaving about a 1/2-inch border without jam.
2.Fold dough over top; crimp sides with a fork. Bake until golden, 12-16 minutes. For glaze, slowly whisk milk into confectioner's sugar to consistency of syrup. Allow tarts to cool; drizzle with glaze.
